For all that Game of Thrones is a dark show loaded with drama, it’s also a show laced with wit and humor. Today we’re celebrating both aspects of the show, looking at the very best dramatic scenes of season 5, while also enjoying the funniest scenes.
The dramatic scenes that garnered the most votes to make it into our top five include the most talked-about moments of the year.
Our comedic nominees range from Essos to Westeros, from King’s Landing to beyond the Wall, from scathing verbal duels to tense, strange exchanges.
